Security warning

Postby loyd » Sat Dec 01, 2018 1:29 pm

Is anyone getting this message when trying to log in to the Forum? I recently decided to start using Firefox browser to avoid being tracked by Chrome. When I sign in to the forum using Firefox I get this hovering over the sign-in boxes. It still lets me login but I'm wondering what it means.

I think you will get that with any site using that browser if it is not a https:// address.

Probably just when you are asked to do something like login. BTW, you shouldn't use same password across a lot of different sites. Especially those that don't use https (security certificate.)
